The Easter Bunny comes to Anchorage

By KTVA CBS 11 News 6:46 PM April 5, 2014

Kids participate in the Easter Bunny Photo Experience

ANCHORAGE – The Easter Bunny took a break from stuffing Easter baskets and hopped down to the Fifth Avenue Mall.

It’s all part of the Easter Bunny Photo Experience. Families out shopping for Easter outfits gathered near J.C. Penney to meet the iconic rabbit up close and personal. Kids in their spring outfits were able to visit with the Easter Bunny and get their photo taken.

“My parents always took us to Santa at Christmas and the Easter Bunny, anytime we had an opportunity to get our pictures taken,” said Anchorage resident Jennifer Darby. ”It’s just, I think, a good tradition to start. She’s two and a half and she’s obsessed with bunnies so I figured, perfect time.”

The bunny will be available from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday as well as noon to 6 p.m. on Sundays. The event runs through Saturday, April 19.
